The gourmet dinner will be held at the Camp Butler Officer’s Club on Friday, 26 August from 7 – 10:30 p.m. Tickets go on sale Friday, 12 August for $65/person. Proceeds for the dinner and auction will be given to the Semper Fi Fund.
Included in the price of your ticket is a 5 course menu matched with some of Tuscany’s most famous wines crafted by Lamberto Frescobaldi. With over 900 years of wine making experience, the Frescobaldi family continues to set the standard for Italian wine making. For the inaugural event, Vinottimo will be presenting several large format bottles from the Marchesi’s Castello Nipozzano Cantina to be auctioned off to the highest bidder. All live auction proceeds from the sale of these collectible wines will go to support the Semper Fi Fund.
The live auction and dinner will be hosted by the Vinottimo Team and Frescobaldi Wine Ambassador, Erika Ribaldi. Attendance is extremely limited so make your reservations today.

The VINOTTIMO Team travels throughout the overseas military bases conducting wine tastings, bottle signings and wine dinners featuring wine ambassadors from Italy’s best wineries. Over the last 10 years we have developed a following of Active Duty and Civilian DOD personnel who enjoy great food and wine and welcome the opportunity to give back to our troops deployed overseas.
They are actively involved in raising funds for our fearless men and women who continue to go into harm’s way so that we can enjoy the privileges of living in the best country in the world. The Vinottimo Team Is proud to partner with the Semper Fi Fund in supporting our Marine Corps warriors and any other service members injured in support of the Marines around the world.
During 2011, Vinottimo will be conducting more of these events on overseas bases all around the world combining the pleasures of fine fine food and wine with giving to our wounded warriors. An updated events schedule is available on our Website link at: Vinottimo.com
